Satellite remote sensing and Geographic Information System (GIS) offer great promise for natural resources management. These techniques have potential to predict and zonate different levels of crop response in a spatial and temporal dimension, when coupled with relevant information. Suitable blend of these technologies will aid in efficient management of resources to enhance the crop productivity in a sustainable basis.Sustainable production increase can be achieved by two ways in irrigated agriculture, either new irrigation projects can be developed or existing schemes can be evaluated and their performance can be improved. In recent years, improving irrigation systems performance is more preferable than developing new irrigation areas. Performance assessment is the spatial and temporal evaluation of irrigation system to diagnose problems and is considered as the most critical element for improving irrigation management.
